Can’t Wait for Science Day?
The Rockville Science Center sponsors online science presentations the second and third Tuesday of every month. For something a bit more hands-on, the center hosts classes and engaging activities, such as a family chess club.
Open discussion periods are held Thursday evenings and STEM Activities Day is the last Saturday of each month. Activities are held in the center’s storefront at 36C Maryland Ave. and in the Makerspace at the Rockville Memorial Library, 21 Maryland Ave.
RSC also offers spring break and summer classes at its Rockville Town Square locations and local schools. Learn more about these and other upcoming events at www.rockvillesciencecenter.org.
RSC is a nonprofit supported by the generous donations of its members and sponsors, including the City of Rockville. Learn how to support RSC at www.rockvillesciencecenter.org/supporter.
